Robert Garbett on Start-Up Funding and Business Planning
Words By: Drone Major
The world today is fast paced, innovative and highly competitive. At times it seems that regulations cannot keep pace with inventors and at other times it is the case that inventors cannot keep pace with each other. Everyone is scrambling to create their own break through, hoping to bring to life a concept never before thought possible. Having recently gone through the Start-up phase ourselves, Drone Major knows that creating unique ideas is challenging… but finding funding should not be. To merge this gap and help other new, young companies, Drone Major has partnered with financial services provider, Swoop.
In this episode of The Drone Major Podcast, Robert Garbett, the Chief Executive, discusses his own experience with building a Start-Up from a simple idea to a formalised business plan. He speaks on the importance of a full-spectrum team – people to produce the creative ideas and people to logically consider the financial consequences. “Being a first mover,” Garbett says, “there are all sorts of obstacles… but it is our moral and our business responsibility to remove those obstacles.” How does Garbett believe obstacles are best removed? A strong internal team and proactive financial planning.
